The KrasG12D/+;LSL-Trp53R172H/+;Pdx-1-Cre (KPC) mouse model is frequently employed for preclinical therapeutic testing, in particular in regard to antistromal therapies. Here, we investigate the prognostic implications of histopathological features that may guide preclinical trial design. Pancreatic tumor tissue from n =...
